It appears your door lock has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Hey Susan,
Sounds like the latch/lock mechanism in the door is stuck in the "locked" can look at the door lock, if the latch piece is in the way of the vehicle latch piece, you can move it out of the way with your hand/fingers. There should be nothing blocking the door latch mechanism..I hope this is clear enough...

Hello Ann Calk -Unfortunately depending on which part it is exactly since there is any adhesive available to glue it back together you need to purchase the entire door panel. I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the window washer.

My whirlpool duet washer will not move forward with the cycle and will not allow me to open door. I have tried the pause/cancel button and depressing the end of cycle button on front. nothing so far,...

Assuming that you mean the washer stops at the spin cycle and door remains locked, then thats normal safety precaution when tub has water in it. If the drain pump is bad or restricted this could be a reason for this happening. You can get the door opened by taking off the bottom front portion of the washer also known as a kickplate. Once this is done with the machine unplugged you can reach up on the right side an there usually is a plastic tab that you pull that will release the door catch. While your down there you can check the drain pump, located in the front center of the machine. On most of the front load the pumps have a center piece facing forwad that you can twist to the left to unscrew and remove any debris that could be blocking water flow. If this is the case you still may need to replace the drain pump depending on how long somethings been in the pump. Hope this helps.
